What are Palazzo Jeans and How to Style Them

Hi Ladies, Today I’m talking about Palazzo jeans! What are they?

Palazzo jeans are relaxed, loose jeans similar to wide-leg jeans but roomier.

Whereas wide-leg jeans have a relaxed straight cut from thigh to ankle, Palazzo jeans flare from the waist and are more generous through the leg. They’re more flowy.

Palazzo pants are one of the top denim trends for summer 2024, replacing their polar opposite, skinny-leg jeans. Their relaxed, glamorous, Boho vibe brings back memories of 70’s style for many of us.

I’m revisiting this look today by sharing a fabulous new pair of Frame Palazzo Jeans I recently bought in NYC. Here’s how I’ve been wearing them, plus a few other Palazzo jeans that are popular now and chic ways to style them.

Dark Denim Palazzo Jeans from Frame

After years of skinnies, it felt pretty weird to slip on such wide-leg jeans, but these turned out to be very easy to get used to because they are so comfy.

This cool pair from Frame Jeans has a classy dark wash and a flattering high waist, making them a little more formal than some.

The waistband is wide and detailed, with a two-button closure and so much contrast stitching that it looks like a built-in belt. I love the fit (true to size), and the length makes them great for wearing with low, chunky heels or sneakers.

If you don’t know Frame, it’s a California fashion brand from Venice Beach that specializes in premium jeans. Frame jeans are famous for their flattering fit and are sold at Nordstrom and Bloomingdale, among others. They are handmade in the U.S.

What Tops Suit Palazzo Jeans

As you can see above, there are many ways to wear Palazzo jeans. You can style them with different tops to get different looks. For example, look:

  • PREPPY with a cropped blue pinstripe shirt and a lavender sweater tied around my neck
  • SPORTY with a nautical navy and white tee and a hot pink denim jacket.
  • CASUALLY ELEGANT with a lady jacket cardigan

Speaking of leg lengthening, these stripe Palazzo jeans are super slimming because of the vertical lines. Gauze tops are trending, and this chic boatneck one is a natural match for these pants.

Palazzo jeans can also be worn with cute slides like these textured slides with the big, trendy buckle. (If you haven’t got buckle sandals for summer, they are a must, and I especially like the bamboo buckle on these)

Light Wash Palazzo Jeans

Here’s a fabulous pair of Palazzo jeans for women our age that are trendy yet classy.  This beautiful light wash is fresh, like white jeans, but more modern.

The smooth, clean finish also makes them look more sophisticated. Even though these jeans have a bit of a raw edge, they are subtle and add a youthful touch.

Another tip for wearing wide-leg palazzo jeans is to wear them with sneakers. These white sneakers are simple and as elegant as you can get for a running shoe.

I’ve added this simple blue T-shirt and relaxed neutral bag to elevate this casual outfit.  With the light wash, silver earrings look better than gold, bringing this outfit to life.
